Tommy’s War Figures

These two are from the excellent Tommy’s War range.

Corporal 1st Bn London Irish Rifles

World War One offers fascinating stories of bravery and humanity and the story of the Footballer of Loos is one of those extraordinary stories that if were not so well documented would be unbelievable.

Christmas Truce 1914

Depicting a Private soldier of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and a German soldier of a Prussian regiment these figures are wonderfully sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi shaking hands, a gesture of goodwill to not only remember the fragile truce of that time but to also remind us of our bonds in the present.
